What Shape Is Space? : A primer for the 21st century Paperback / softback

Edited by Matthew Taylor

Part of the The Big Idea series


The Big Idea shortlisted for series design in the British Design and Production AwardsWhat Shape is Space? is a question with surprisingly far-reaching implications for our understanding of the very nature of reality and our place within it.

The concepts involved may be sophisticated, but Giles Sparrow's effortless prose style easily renders them understandable, allowing readers to get to grips with the overarching debates at the cutting edge of cosmology today.

Infographics, diagrams and astronomical visualizations illustrate and clarify the various astonishing implications of a universe of infinite space.
